NODA News - Eddie Cran Reports

SHOWCASE                           “At The Movies”                28th Sept – 2nd Oct 1999 Director: Andy Johnston                                   Musical Director: David McFarlane Choreographer: Louise Williamson

Once again this very talented company provided entertainment of a high standard for their audiences. A clutch of Elvis look-alikes sand, with great backing, followed by a contrasting style of toe-tapping numbers from “The Boyfriend”. Well-known songs from “Legends of the Screen” completed Part 1 of this musical evening.

 In Part 2, we enjoyed excerpts from “Camelot” (superb costumes and backcloths); and then we had the expected high standards of presentation of the “Headlines” section, always a treat. I repeat a comment from my Showcase report of 1991 – “Had a little less amplification come from the orchestra, the show would have benefited: audiences are entitled to hear what the performers are saying and singing.” It was disappointing to see a number of the audience with hands over their ears. A word of praise however for the cast, the costuming, wigging and staging, all of which added to the entertainment value of the night. The show was splendid, bright and colourful, enjoyed by audience and performers alike.
